      • JCE should be part of the core.

        Joomla Content Editor should be part of the core. TinyMCE is too feature poor of an editor and the media manager capabilites are much better than the existing one in Joomla core.

              • Resizing of images

                The possibility to set the size of images that is uploaded to the site. Not all the users has the knowledge needed to reduce size of images before uploading them. If this could be done automatic it would be greate! Admin sets the parameters and all the images are sized the way admin wants!

                  • HTML5 support via XML "switch" in Joomla! templates

                    Although there have been other requests to add HTML5 support for Joomla!, I think the proposed solutions may complicate things...

                    Here's a simpler one: let the template developer "choose" HTML5 in the templateDetails.xml file and have Joomla! generate the HTML5 equivalent meta tags that it currently outputs in <jdoc:include type="head" />...

                    A DEEPER EXPLANATION
                    A simple solution to "attach" HTML5 per template and not entirely on a Joomla! site is to add a new XML api call in the templateDetails.xml where a template developer can declare if their template is HTML5 compatible or not. Something like:

                    <ishtml5>true</ishtml5>

                    That way we…

                        • One URL per content (phase out ItemId)

                          Urls should be created from content, not menu items. The menu manager should merely create aliases to articles and components, lists excepted. Instead of Item(menu)ID, modules should be assigned to lists, articles, categories, components, etc. Advantages: will shave a layer of complexity from Joomla, eliminate duplicate content and allow for cleaner URLs. The only minor disadvantage that comes to mind is same article can't have 2 or more links and module assignments.

                            • Auto menu item creation when you create article on the frontend!

                              When a user creates an article via the frontend, then only way to create a menu link is for an admin to go into the backend.
                              Or for a categories page to be created which will just be one link to ALL created article of that category.
                              We need to allow a site to expand naturally with it's users, and navigation of the content is very important.
                              Please vote 3 votes to get the key feature added to Joomla as soon as possible!
                              Thank you!

                                  The hability to add social media buttons like Facebook's like or Twitt Me's on articles. It's mainly because there are several ones but none that allow full customization without gettin' into PHP code, and that's simply not Joomla!

                                    Wouldn't it be great to add the RESTful API and move away from XML-RPC?

                                    - Each method along with its own URL.
                                    - CRUD (Create, Read, Update and Delete) functions.
                                    - Output: JSON, XML, etc.

                                    • Multiple Authors of a Single Article

                                      It would be really cool if a article had the possibility of having multiple authors. I've searched all through the forums which many seem to be in support of this. Perhaps either a button "Add Another Author", or a simple comma to separate the usernames on the Article Owner list. This would make it so another user (author) could edit the article as well. This would then change the need to make all my users a editor which increases the security of people's content if this feature was added. And for those who do not want multiple authors for there…
